that is growing. there are many people in the republican party such as george w. bush and john mccain who put more politically on the line for comprehensive immigration reform more than many democrats if not most of them. i think there are folks in the party who can listen to things like that. there are ted cruz in texas for instance who is not for amnesty but knows the issue of immigration and border concerns. you have got jeff flake in arizona understand border issues. but i do think this border issue. promises, promises, promises. folks will be upset including white working class voters. martha: you think back to the moments along the way in these elections and when the turning points were. my mind goes back to marco rubio who was about to put forth some legislation that was very similar to what -- a policy that would literally came out of the lips of president obama days later. right before president obama put out his feeling that people who came under the age of 16 and those ramifications that he put out there, right before he did that marco rubio had this plan of his own. governor romney had
to stay. john mccain was criticized when he ran for president for his more open perspective on how to approach this problem. he didn't get anywhere with that. he lost his election as well. what are the lessons here. >> the first lesson is the president is not the only one who can evolve on an issue. martha: the president said he had evolved on the issue of gay marriage. >> i think it is a significant fire. a signal that maybe we should be open. this will come up in the next congress regardless. certainly at least tone has to be moderated if not policy. and i think that is an important part of reaching out to a new electorate that is growing. there are many people in the republican party such as george w. bush and john mccain who put more politically on the line for comprehensive immigration reform more than many democrats if not most of them. i think there are folks in the party who can listen to things like that. there are ted cruz in texas for instance who is not for amnesty but knows the issue of immigration and border concerns. you have got jeff flake in arizona understand bord

the democratic -- demographic reason is democratic votes are clustered in the big metropolitan areas. john mccain -- excuse me, barack obama in 208120 congressional bishops with 80% of vote more. john mccain 10 by the margin. against democrats a lot of votes in those big states, but it also means there's not that many democrats into chasing districts. this time obama probably cared about the same number of states with a percentage. romney may have gotten that percentage and where to districts in utah. so maybe it's time for a political scientist and as political pundits to roll out another go about ochs, who has a lock on which part of the government before that will, too, becomes obsolete. thank you. >> now and it will tell us about the republican party. >> i think the temptation for republicans, going through any case, is going to be engaging in denial. and that's what you saw with the "washington times" piece that karlyn today. it's understandable. it's the human response. but it would be very smart for the publicans to get farther along from those stages and not stay in the denial stage very
the demographic reason is democratic votes are clustered in a statement opposing areas and john mccain in 2008 -- arauca bowman 208,128 congressional districts with 80% of the vote or more in and john mccain 10 i that margin. that gives democrats a lot of votes in those big states but it could also mean there are not that many democrats in the adjacent districts. at this time obama carried about the same number of states with that percentage. romney may have gotten a percentage in one or two districts and utah. so maybe it's time for a political scientists scientist and as political pundits to rule out another rule about locks and who has the lock and which on which part of the government before that rule too becomes obsolete. thank you. >> i think the temptation for republicans are in many cases going through this are first going to be engaging in denial and that is what you saw with the washington times. it's understandable. it's a human response, but it would be very smart for the republicans to get further along because they cannot stay in the denial stage very long. because when we look a
years. john mccain got 31% four years ago, george w. bush got 40% in 2004. exit polls show latinos are becoming a solid democratic voting black. in 2004, 42% of latino voters called themselves democrats and 31% returns. that moved to 51% democratic, to 21% republican. bill o'reilly had a warning for fox viewers last night. >> just a changing country. the demographics are changing, it's not a traditional america anymore. and there are 50% of the voting public who want stuff. they want things. and who is going to give them things? president obama. he knows it and he ran on it. and whereby 20 years ago, president obama would have been defeated by an establishment candidate like mitt romney. the whitish willment is now the minority. >> unioning me now is joy reid. how bad are you feeling for the white establishment tonight? >> tragic. >> bill o'reilly and the white establishment are founding their powers fading. >> yeah, it's fading. i will concede to bill o'reilly absolutely the the minorities who are taking over the country want stuff. they want to not have voter id laws, they want t
that was a howard dean expression thrown out. but what i said is john mccain, 90% of his votes were christian and 90% were white. and white folks in this country who are voting, 90% of all the votes are down close to 70% and have you to get larger and charge larger share of them in order to win. one point, if mitt romney won almost as large a share of the white vote as ronald reagan did. if the country had the same demography at 1980 and 84, romney would be president. >> sean: what do you think of that analysis? >> i mean, that's like wishful happening, it is not reality. the suggestion, i think this is what got pat in trouble is that somehow, it's only a real america if it's overwhelmingly white in terms of the electorate or the population. again, that's just, you know, looking back to the 1950s. the reality is that in yesterday's election, you look at the latino population, as a share of the vote twent from 9% in 2008, now up to 10 percent. 70% for obam a. black population, 90% for obam a. asian population, plus 50 for obama. this is really, i think of a changing, more diverse america -- [overlapp
at the altar of their ideals. but you are right. the refusal to say this is wr g wrong. like john mccain did, no, ma'am, he's not an arab. he's an extraordinary person. that's what we have to have from the republican party. otherwise, they are fueling and fostering and facilitating a vicious reality. >> professor michael eric dyson, great to have you with us tonight. thanks so much. >>> coming up, conservatives are desperate to explain how mitt romney could have lost this election. and you wouldn't believe the third string excuses. riding the dog like it's a small horse is frowned upon in this establishment! luckily though, ya know, i conceal this bad boy underneath my blanket just so i can get on e-trade. check my investment portfolio, research stocks... wait, why are you taking... oh, i see...solitary. just a man and his thoughts. and a smartphone... with an e-trade app. ♪ nobody knows...

iss ers who lean democratic, have grown. in 2004, president bush got 40% of the latino vote. john mccain, 31% in 2008, and for mitt romney this year, just 27%. in the wake of tuesday, republicans soul-searching will look at places like florida's osceola county, bush won it. but a growing number of constituency now helped obama there. >> you go out and disrespect the hispanic community like that, you think we don't notice that? >> reporter: in florida alone, the hispanic population has grown since 2008. but among them, republicans are perceived as tone deaf on critical topics, immigration reform. >> well, the answer is people decide they can do better by going home because they can't find work here. >> reporter: the words matter. >> even though barack obama has deported more undocumented people in the history of the united states, it is the words that are used. self-deportation, i think, was really, really hurtful. >> reporter: republicans must think about how to balance their core ideas against this shifting demographic landscape. >> republicans, at least at the national level want to wi
like john mccain and hatch have to run far to their right just to keep their offices. this is very perilous for our country. i'm looking for us to go back where you had guys like ronald reagan and tip o'neill who reached across the aisle. >> friends in the newt gingrich second term worked very well together. >> i think we have the right president for that. but we need the right leadership coming out of congress that's going to rise up to the challenge and bring our nation together. most of us in the country are not on the margin. most of us, however we identify, republican or democrat, we have so much more in common than we do apart. that's where we hope that our government will follow where the people are. >> that's so true. cory booker, great to see you. better luck on the ground. appreciate you coming in. >>> coming up next, how the republican party lost a battle. we'll go head to head on that question. questions from bing elections. do you know where your polling place is? maybe somewhere around my house. mine's just, right over that way. well you can find out exactly where it
the rich. after senator john mccain lost the 2008 presidential race much of the republican spotlight landed on his vice presidential pick sarah palin. now her observers are wondering if the same thing will happen to mitt romney's running mate paul ryan. chip reid is in janesville wisconsin, with that. chip, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. paul ryan is spending some down time with his family in his hometown of janesville wisconsin, before heading back to washington, and yes, he will be heading back to washington because while he lost the vice presidential bid, he was overwhelmingly re-elected by the people of this district to his seat in congress. and now, just two days after election day, talk in political circles is already turning to paul ryan's political future. for mitt romney losing the presidential campaign likely means the end of the political road, but for paul ryan defeat could lead to a new beginning. >> i don't know if he covered himself with glory, but i think he kind of met a certain test. >> reporter: a test that has already led
jim saltzman. it's not like '08 when he simply returned to the senate, like john mccain. what's next for mitt romney? does he even fit into the ongoing political conversation? >> that's a good question. the nice thing about being a billionaire is that you can choose your role, most likely. i don't think we'll see governor romney trying to maintain or bring -- have any kind of leadership role in the republican party going forward. i do think, having gone through a version of this in the aftermath of 2004 with democrats where there again you had john kerry, who went back to the senate, but there still was this question about who was the leader of the democratic party. i don't think you'll see mitt romney be a part of that conversation. i would imagine he'll take some time off and kind of heal from all of this. a loss is a loss. and then decide for himself. i actually would not be surprised if we don't really see him on the national political scene much anymore. >> certainly, it is tough because you put your heart and soul into this many campaign. it is hard for him. high profile republ
the single best word for it this is no the a campaign like you had four years ago with john mccain staffers could largely see the writing on the wall. most of the people from the mid-level folks on down especially looked up at the top echelon, looked at mitt romney who was projecting complete confidence, he and i sat as close as you and i are on the last day and he said we will win this thing and the people believed it. to have the bottom fall out by 10:00 or 11:00 at night we saw a lot of devastated people. >> how much longer does romney get secret service? like the things that go along with the presidential campaign, how soon does that wither away? >> the secret service is all but done at this point. he still had the agents overnight. some of the agents still around in boston the next day. their basic prerogative is to make sure protesters aren't going to overrun his house and the baseline level of security is there. and with the romney family, largely spread out across the country, no young kids in boston their work is all but done at this point. back to a private citizen by today. >> wh
john mccain taking on the white house over the benghazi attack. a lot of the questions are for general petraeus, at the center of a growing scandal. lieutenant colonel rick francona once served in the cia also. the opinionated penn gillette. god bless you. >> thank you so much. >> let us start, if i may, with the lieutenant colonel. it is bordering on the absurd, this story. at the same time, there are very serious potential ramifications. we've already seen the loss of general petraeus as director of the cia. to many people's minds, one of the great military figures of his generation. he's gone. you have another general supposed to take over the ultimate nato supreme command position who is now embroiled in the same scandal as well and that may or may not end in a certain way. what do you make of it? where do you see this going? >> well, it's surprising that you have two four star generals basically being removed from the scene this close together, and they both came from the same command. you'll remember that general allen was general petraeus' deputy when they were at central comman
you support comprehensive immigration reform like john mccain did but then refuse to do it when president obama is in the white house, when you have the nominee of the party, mitt romney, saying people should self deport. so their house and go back to mexico. you cannot win latino votes when you make war against them . what againstin california has happen nationwide. -- what has happened in california happened nationwide. i am not sure how much credit arthur davis has. i was disappointed when he left the party and supported mitt romney. i did not buy his reasons for doing so. i would disagree with him on this. i do not think republicans should write off the african- american party at all. they are talking about jobs, improving the economy. if they are willing to save medicare and social security are going to stay, they can get african-american votes. to write them off as arthur davis suggested i think would be a colossal mistake. host: we will get to your calls in just a moment. you can also send us a comment on facebook or twitter. what surprised you about the election? guest:
conservatives. eventually, truth will out. in 2008, you could have run carrot top in a thong against john mccain and he probably would have won. the fact that barack obama won after all the misinformation and lying, makes me proud that the americans saw through the lies. people stood in line for hours. >> the jeep ads backfired. >> stephanie: this is going to be the difference in the conservative and liberal media. they're going to tell you you're stupid and lazy. we're going to tell you you're smart and pretty and we love you. >> oh, god! >> stephanie: i just, i'm saying i think people would rather listen to a happy lappie message. >> that's why i like listening to your show. i don't listen to them, they're not entertaining. >> stephanie: john fugelsang is saying you're wicked smart and startlingly beautiful. >> too bad we're not backstage in a dressing room. >> he likes to kiss himself. >> preparing for shows is what i meant to say. >> stephanie: by the way john fugelsang threw up just before the show and still knocked them dad, looking beautiful. still knocked it out of the park. see you tomo
was underperforming john mccain among hispanics, he actually won more of the african-american vote than john mccain did. now, he won 6% instead of 4%, but he actually got up to like 8% or 9% among 18 to 29-year-old african-americans which is the group that's hardest hit by unemployment. again, these are tiny numbers. >> mitt romney underperformed a light post with hispanics. don't get started on that. >> a jack kent republican would be very welcome right now to create some sense of competition. we have 10% or 11% of the country right now in free fall and neither party taking it seriously. that's bad. >> it's not as if the republicans didn't work for the african-american and latino vote, they actively rejected it. that was the sense i got. they used it as a way to run up the score with white voters and really created a corrosive toxic discourse that i think hurt everybody. >> what's your unsolicited advice today, ana? >> well, my unsolicited advice is for -- >> hold it up. >> how do you say that in spanish? an extra exclamation point. >> say yeb or bushito. he will respond to either in miami. in ful
in 2008 because he thought it was be spiking the ball and disrespectful for john mccain. >> yes. >> stephanie: we were saying what a dichotomy. the president crying actual tears for these kids that worked their hearts off for them. and mitt romney all he thinks of is to cut off their credit cards. >> i enjoy fire peopling. >> you hadn't heard that john about the credit cards? >> no. but it is really really shocking. and again, it's like they didn't know, because fox news loves to brag how they are the top-rated news channel but if that means that having the most ratings gives you the most credibility, that spongebob has more credibility than fox news. more americans watch spongebob than fox news. >> stephanie: yeah, and we were saying it is all about content in this new age, even as we know what they have done on radio, we were on a teeny tiny amount of stations compared to the right-wingers, but people are listening on line on stitcher on satellite they are podcasting. that's the thing you can't stop information in this day and age. for instance, they talked
. >> stephanie: john mccain -- he is such a angry bitter little elf about losing. there was no viable military option to deflect sporadic attacks in a city full of people sympathetic to the us. really, you are going to drop a bomb -- >> well, in rambo what happened was -- >> stephanie: okay. armed drones were not in the area, air strikes without intelligence posed a huge risk of killing americans and civilians. last week the cia managers told officials benghazi not to go to the aid -- oh, they gave a stand-down order? >> no. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: when the annex itself was under attack officials refused to pass along request for military assistance and one of the officers had laser sited pointing at the attackers. they responded actually within 25 minutes, jim. >> uh-huh. >> stephanie: this is just a completely -- >> they had sharks with laser beams -- >> it's a gish-gallop. >> stephanie: yeah. the attack was over before the forces could be employed. there were no orders to anybody to standown. and another senior intelligence official, armed droneings were not near
candidate had been maybe in my lifetime. or certainly in the last 30 years. john mccain almost lost the republican primary season in 2008 because he was in favor of comprehensive immigration reform. he had to double back. they're going to have to get out of that. they're going to have to be able to say there is a different path forward, not just to citizenship, but to dealing with immigration as an issue, which is complicated, understandably. but start with more actually free market type of solutions and say, hey, look, why are we micromanaging the number of immigrants from each and every country? why don't we expand the number of visas? start with that, certainly. start shutting down people who use immigration as a very passionate and very irrational issue from which to sort of project all of their fears. >> we are already starting to see and hear some of that from folks on the right. let's switch gears and talk about this year's electorates. according to exit polls, there's been a steady decline of white voters. in 2008, they made out 80%. in 2004, you see it go down. in 2012, we'
, it cost us the election. >> it absolutely cost you the election. >> i can't believe if we had john mccain's percentage of latino voters. >> is it not a problem for the republican party in that the loudest voices within, if you want to call it the framework of the republican party, are voices on the radio or on tv had it comes to issues that affect that specific aspect of our population, build a wall. self-deport. get buses. get them out of the country. is that not a huge problem? >> you know, it's a huge problem if your elected leaders ckowtow to them. >> it's also why you take hits and get called names. >> i got 80% of the vote in the republican primary. anybody that ever took that attack against me when i was in office got rolled over, got crushed because you know what? you can take it to the people. and if you believe what you believe, they'll listen to talk radio. they'll watch certain stations. but at the end of the day, if the leaders have the guts to do what's in the best interests -- and mike, this is a great point, and this is where the party needs to go as they move forward. lea
really got it. howard dean revolutionized the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, and it came campaign was-of the mccain cabin was up and down. -- campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the sup
